[Freeswitch-users] Current timestamp variable in dialplan?

I'm looking for a variable I can access in the dialplan (I use XML if it 
matters) which will tell me the current time (when I read the variable) in the 
format 2022-11-02 12:34:56.789789

If that's not available, but a microsecond-resolution Epoch timestamp is, what 
would be the function to convert this to the above human format?

tells me about variables which are set after a channel is hung up, so they're 
no use during call setup, and

https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/Channel+Variables doesn't 
seem to have anything which represents "now".

Can anyone suggest where I should be looking to find such variables?
